Foods to Fight Fatigue

While we love nothing more than getting cosy on the sofa and snuggling up with a bowl of comfort food, the longer nights (and darker mornings) can leave the body feeling exhausted and fatigued.

If you find yourself struggling to roll out of bed in the morning, then don't worry - there's plenty you can do to help, without having to stretch for endless coffees or even energy drinks!

While exercising can boost energy levels and put a spring in your step, there are also plenty of foods to help you overcome fatigue and power you through the day. Here are our top five:

Water

Not only will drinking plenty of water hydrate your body and give you a youthful glow, but it will also send energy soaring. To up your intake, try eating plenty of foods that are rich in H2O as well - melon, cucumber and celery all contain high amounts of water.

Beans

Packed with fibre which takes longer to digest, beans are the perfect natural energy booster. Since fibre also helps to stabilise blood sugar levels, the energy will be on an even keel throughout the day. What's more, beans tend to be rich in magnesium, which helps to support the body in relaxing and recharging.

Nuts

With high levels of protein and fibre, nuts are the perfect snack to send depleting energy levels flying high. Roasted and salted pistachios (ideally ones made at home with pink salt, so you can control the levels of salt you are consuming!) even come with the benefit of helping the body to restore electrolytes - perfect post-workout fuel!

Complex Carbs

With plenty of fibre, complex carbs (such as our beloved Rizopia pasta) are the ideal meal to keep your body firing on all cylinders. We also recommend eating plenty of sweet potato - the potassium found in sweet potatoes helps to keep electrolyte levels balanced, meaning you stay happy and hydrated.

 

Eggs

Packed with fatigue-fighting protein, as well as iron and zinc, eggs are the perfect breakfast food. Lean proteins such as those found in eggs will keep you full, help to rebuild muscle and keep energy levels at a steady level throughout the entire morning.
